“Wonderful veggie food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The service was wonderful here on my two visits in June and July. The staff knew the menu, the wine was lovely on each occasion and the vegetarian selection was really great. I've been as a couple and a group - the atmosphere is good for both and the khachapuri is lovely. Other good veggie items are borscht, bean stew and the salads. The vodka has a real kick! Absolutely wonderful value too for the portion sizes and food quality.

“Real Georgian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Fans of Georgian food know that it's hard to find outside of the former USSR, especially hard to find outside of Georgia, and frequently terrible when you do finally find it (I'm looking at you, every Brighton Beach "Georgian" place). We were delighted with the level of authenticity and quality at Little Georgia in Islington. The restaurant itself is kitschy and hip, and the service was friendly and informal. Khachapuri (Georgian cheese bread) is frequently the hardest thing for restaurants outside of Georgia to get right, and the Adjaruli Khachapuri we had was perfect. We also ordered the Meze (mixed appetizer platter) for 2 people, which was small portions of a lot of different salads and veggie dishes - eggplant and cilantro featured heavily. They were very flexible and let us have Adjaruli Khachapuri with the dish, which generally comes with either lobiani (bean filled bread) or a different kind of khachapuri. We also ordered the Kotnis Lobio (hot red bean dish) and the beetroot salad, both of which were amazing. The beetroot salad was spicy and simple. They have an extensive selection of Georgian wines, which if you haven't had before… best to start with a glass rather than a bottle. They also had Borjomi (an amazing Georgian sparkling mineral water) on the menu, but were out of it during our visit. Overall, we can't recommend this place enough for people in search of authentic Georgian food in London - and for those who haven't tried Georgian yet, get on it.

“lovely place for a date”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Sit upstairs or outside on one of the two tables if it's lunch time and sunny.
Get the Borscht - it's cheap and delicious. Great wines!
Relaxed atmosphere and candle light in the evenings.
Nice pubs nearby on Broadway Market - The Dove is cosy!

“South east Europe fusion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

For our group of 6 in the early evening the restaurant was initially quiet. Service was not over attentive, but adequate. Food delicious, could perhaps have been hotter. Have not had this cuisine before; reminiscent of Greek food. Cheesy eggy bread very good as part of excellent mixed shared starter. Lovely Georgian wines. We had a great evening. Very good value at £40 per person including drinks and tip.

“True ethnicity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Off the beaten track between Angel and Kings Cross – and definitely worth a visit. Delicious food; beetroot salad, aubergine, chicken liver and been stew – very tasty. Great Georgian redwine (Mukuzani). Funky décor. No online booking – so call them instead.
